That's awesome!

I've never been to any of these places, but love unique geology like that!

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

Will do V! Though my family is remarkable for early childhood memories (we all remember back to before age 2), and my daughter seems to be no different. I do have a fond memories of Disneyland too! Once, age 2, with my family. Then at 27, with my daughter's mom when we were dating. And again, 2 year...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

Oh, thanks for the tip! I'll be in SLC the evening of the 7th, until mid-morning on the 9th. Bday is on the 8th, SSR is mid-day on the 9th. Will be in Bryce Canyon/Zion in the afternoon on the 9th, and then will be in Antelope Canyon and Grand canyon on the 10th. I know the Jupiter line runs from SL...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

I'm also deeply relieved to compare and see so much more Venus and Jupiter in my chart with my daughter. It's a relationship that's not without challenges, but my deepest fear is letting my family trauma completely spill into yet another generation. Side note: This week seems like a perfect week to ...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

I think you're saying that these mostly toxic relationships can become the stand in for what I look for in a relationship, which causes me to pick unfortunate partners. I want to find the actual good elements (like my Venus expressed), and not reject everything about those relationships, but I also ...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

Thank you for this Jim. It's deeply validating. I've often wondered whether my impressions were realistic. Because it always felt on some level that I was "raised by wolves" and lucky to be apart from them. Yet it often feels strange that I'm not worse off than I am, if it was really so bad. It soun...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

Yes, there was an over Oedipal dynamic fed by my mother, who often compared my dad with his children, saying that we were smart and he wasn't. Mars-Jupiter he often borrowed money from me when I was a young man. Also I worked for him ever summer from age 6-18, helping him paint mobile home exteriors...

(not offended, she's a mess, and I permanently severed contact with her a decade ago. She's the manipulative hub of the remaining dysfunctional family that are in contact with each other)

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

That unlocks a lot for me. I'd map the Neptune and Saturn angularity to anxious/avoidant attachment. I'd diagnose myself as BPD in my early 20s, and have struggled with major depression, suicidal thoughts. These days, it's mostly managed with art, self care, and medicated with cannabis. I don't trus...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

I think these examples demonstrate that just looking at a list of co-aspects only tells one-third of the story. The co-aspects with my mother, above, don't appear particularly tragic on their own. I see the power struggles, deep and strange communication, me acting as a mentor to her in many ways--t...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

I think I've always struggled to know whether I am just too sensitive and paranoid about my place with others, or whether people I've known really are unloving. I know that I'm very sensitive, and the two-pronged answer is to try to grow thicker skin, and find people who are super kind and gentle, a...

Re: Proper Use of Synastry

As a follow-on, you've pointed out that people with strong malefics in their chart, such as Saturn and Neptune, tend to fare "better" in tough circumstances, than people who have an abundance of benefics. This matches what psychology studies show. Neuroticism is less common than happier personality ...

Proper Use of Synastry

I often wonder about the "proper" use of synastry (and astrology in general), which boils down to questions about what we have the power to control and change in our lives. My impression is that astrology is like the weather, and it can help to plan your life activities around the seasons and the we...

Re: 2019-2020 stations for experimental planets

Thematically, it's almost hilariously on-point. A couple lady friends had been asking for and planning a group activity centered around me this Thursday, but I called it off yesterday as I'm continuing a (hopefully brief) period of celibacy, saving my sexual energy for a person I haven't even met yet.

Re: My SLR & TLR

No, not going to a lawyer which she absolutely should do.

Limiting access to the children punatively, which you advise, is terrible advice, bad for the children, and can be used against you in custody battles.

I think you should take it back, and not give advice beyond going to an attorney.

Re: My SLR & TLR

I'm suggesting Arena protect herself financially and protect her children from her husband using them as pawns to gain financial advantage in their divorce. Once the divorce has been obtained, custody can be updated to give the children better access to their father. Arena has shown herself to be m...

Re: My SLR & TLR

I don't know where Arena is or her financial situation, or how long ago your mother's marriage was. But divorce in many countries has changed considerably in the last few decades. Divorce can be so costly, litigious, drawn out, and a waste of money, and many courts have standardized things to make i...

Re: My SLR & TLR

I appreciate the astrological analysts. However, one thing still is really bugging me: Please people though don't suggest the awful thing of using kids as pawns in a divorce. Kids do better when they have access to both parents, even if one cheated, or you think they're a jerk, or whatever. Trying t...

FWIW I think the most important point here is that it takes two to tango. The interaction created this more than the individuals, then they silently picked their parts in the play. Sure, on a philosophical level, with us all connected through karma. I'm not trying to demonize Arena or paint her as ...
